Never thought about it. I’ll try to take a few shots here soon since it’s almost empty ever since I got my VETO-PRO pac. I keep it behind the seat for help during quicky runs. Come to think about it here’s a shot of it loaded and heavy.

This is a nice shop. It is well organized and, with all the drawers, I would need labels to keep track of what was stored in them. Your mobile cart is a project most of us would enjoy having in our shops, provided there was room, of course. And I have always enjoyed seeing shops with windows. I find it easier to work under natural light, especially when applying finishes or sanding.

I have to agree with Jim on his comment about your tools. I just hope your insurance covered it.

Thanks for the pictures. I enjoyed visiting your shop.

Clean? Silly man. And nope not winding sticks,I’ll explain. My Dad and Grandfather had them but I don’t think think I’ve run across another. I was told it’s called a Door Buck. It is 1 1/2” thick and 6’-7” long pattern grade mahogany with corian bumper ends. It’s used as a straight edge ti install doors. Once you’ve plumb bobbed your door and you push this against the jamb sides and shim the jamb tight to it, making your door jamb sides straight and true.

Buggers up a youngin’s brain when they see me hang a door using a plumb bob and Door Buck. When you could buy these decades ago,(I’am that old), They had 2 or 3 level viles in them. I made mine without.

Hey Jagwah,
Busy shop you have there and a nice ‘Door Buck’...sweet job.

#12 posted 01-21-2010 03:57 AM

hey i learned on a door buck my grand father was a true carpenter and it is one of the only things he taught me.i remember he would say if you cant hang a door right dont even bother walking through it .i see some thing in picture # 2 that i know 3/4 of the these kids that call them selves carpenters dont even know what they are or how to use.but they are well used coping saws and i have a feeling they are owned by a man that knows how to use them.

Wood trim, in the words of Rhett Butler,”Trim is something that needs to be coped and coped well and coped often and by someone who knows how to do it”. In the wood world I’m known as quite a coper, wood quivers at the site of my coping tool.
Ok that’s enough.
